Description Marc MERLIN 1999-04-15 08:06:16 UTC
Since function is used to start daemons, it will fail to
start any daemon that's in /usr/local.
One might debate whether it's a good idea or not for contrib
RPMs to install in /usr/local, but adding it at the end
of function's PATH can only help

Thank you for the suggestion. It has been passed on to a developer for
further review.

Everytime I install RedHat I have to add /sbin, /usr/sbin to my path.
It would be nice to have these fixed in the install.
